Mountain Bird reveals heartbreaking palpable ballad 'Clean From You'
27 September 2019
The song is taken from his forthcoming EP 'DearBrainLetMeSleep'
Today, Mountain Bird (aka Adam Öhman) has released his latest single 'Clean From You' . With a sanguine approach to losing someone close, 'Clean From You' is tinged with an aching melancholy that’s heartbreakingly palpable as you listen. With its beguiling synth textures and beautiful falsetto vocals, with interwoven vocoder sounds, it’s impossible not to be moved by this powerful track.
Mountain Bird says: “‘Clean From You’ is about being cheated on and finding out in a bad way. To be let down by someone you thought you were really close to, and to lose trust in all future relationships. It’s about trying to get that self-confidence back, but always being careful in new relationships, and wondering if it will ever go away. All relationships shape you in a good and bad way; we just think we can shape ourselves, but it’s mostly dependent on other people and their actions. It’s quite provocative if you think about it that way”
This honesty in Mountain Bird’s music gives his songs such a deep personal connection, coupled with the fact that Adam is continuing to sing the vocals on his tracks himself, as opposed to working with session vocalists as he had done prior to 2019. “Clean From You” shows how Mountain Bird continues to create beauty out of the darkest of places.
Since his first releases in 2014, Mountain Bird has received radio airplay from BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Radio X, Absolute Radio, Amazing Radio, and garnered fans from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, Clash, The 405, and Ja Ja Ja.
The EP ‘DearBrainLetMeSleep’ will be released via Nettwerk Records early next year. Until then, Mountain Bird shares some tracks from his favorite artists, like Sohn, Mura Musa, James Blake and more on his new playlist: listen here.
